What Is Stamp Duty?

Stamp duty land tax or SDLT is a taxed sum a person must pay when buying a property or land if it costs more than a certain amount. The rate at which you’ll pay the tax varies based on the property price.

How Much Is Stamp Duty (SDLT)?

At Gorvins, we know that purchasing a property can be a stressful time and, whether it’s your first home or you’re a seasoned investor, there can be unexpected hurdles during the buying process. The most common issues encountered by prospective buyers are of a financial nature, and the best way to combat hiccoughs is through extensive planning to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible from offer through to completion.

Stamp Duty Changes For First Time Buyers

As of November 22nd, 2017, it was announced in the Autumn budget that first-time buyers will pay zero stamp duty on the first £300,000 of any home that costs up to £500,000 with immediate effect. This means for any home worth less than £300,000, you’ll pay no stamp duty.


The new changes apply to purchases by first-time buyers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – there is no change for buyers in Scotland, however.


For purchases between £300,001 and £500,000, you will pay 5% on that portion of the purchase price only. For those first-time buyers purchasing a home costing more than £500,000, you won’t benefit from any change and will be buying under the standard system, which applies to non first-time buyers too.
